NOTE: For those of you who pay attention to dates, please realize ISD is usually celebrated on June 20 each year (longest day of year). HOWEVER, this year it runs smack head-on into “Fathers’ Day” and this really messed-up our planning for the event. Therefore, the Santa Cruz Chapter will celebrate INTERNATIONAL SURFING DAY on Saturday, June 19. However, on Sunday we are having a group surf session to celebrate ISD.  Cowell’s Beach, 10am – 12pm.  C’mon down and ride a wave with your POP for ISD!
